The Management and students of the Faculty of Law have paid a study-visit to the Judicial Service of Ghana as part of a familiarization tour of key institutions in the country.
The Manager of the new Law Court Complex, Naa Afarley Dadson expressed her joy as she welcomed the student lawyers. She also briefed the UPSA entourage on the workings of the judiciary before leading them on the tour.
The students after touring the Supreme Court and the ultra-modern Law Court Complex in Accra also had the privilege of witnessing some court proceedings especially at the Land Courts (4 and 8), Commercial Courts (4 and 10), General Jurisdiction Court (1 and 3) as well as the Criminal Court 3.
The group also donated packs of bottled water, toiletries and some detergents to the Judicial Service.
Presenting the items, senior lecturer at the Faculty, Dr. Francisca Kusi-Appiah said the exercise was part of UPSA’s corporate social responsibility. She further added that it was also a way of contributing to improving the sanitary conditions at our Courts.
Receiving the donation on behalf of the management team of the Judiciary, the second Deputy Judicial Secretary, Richard Apietu thanked the students and their lecturers for the kind gesture and called on other institutions to emulate.
Criminal Law and Accountability Institution lecturer, Gloria Mavis Kwainoe said it was important to inculcate the habit of giving back to society into our students.
“We begin to succeed with our own life when the need of others begins to matters to us. The items donated were sponsored by the students and staff of the Faculty who voluntarily gave money for this purpose, and this laudable,” she said.
